GLAMOUR – Emma Roberts’s filmography runs the gamut. She’s done horror (American Horror Story), comedy (Little Italy), comedy-horror (Scream Queens), and now a seasonal rom-com.
Yes, Roberts is jumping on the Christmas-movie train with Holidate, a Netflix original about two singles who agree to be each other’s dates for parties throughout the holiday season that premieres October 28. The reason? So no one will ask about their relationship statuses. But what happens when a simple social arrangement turns into something more? You’ll just have to watch and see.
“I think people are loving holiday rom-coms because there’s a sense of nostalgia,” Roberts says about the reemergence of the genre. “I know, for me, it’s so comforting watching romantic comedies. I grew up on them, especially my aunt [Julia Roberts]’s movies, like My Best Friend’s Wedding and Notting Hill, which are so iconic. They just really make you feel good. We all want to feel good these days. We all want to believe in love and feel loved and celebrate each other and feel like there’s good news out there.”
